Have so many neat things to show our customers here today but please let me first make a comment on MY page mainly because it is mine and I don’t have to seem attacking someone in particular on Facebook. See I get accused of getting too wrapped up in a subject… who ME? Yeah so to keep feathers down I still feel it important to interject what I feel are important things… don’t worry Scott, the claws aren’t out….
So my point is….. Oh lord, keep me on the path your path: Yesterday on Facebook this coach was posted for sale by Billy only helping the community to see what the trends are and what’s out there And please understand if you want a coach that’s awesome but looks like this we can make it look like this …. if you want! likewise, we can take a coach that looks like this and turn it into this RC has a good eye for rolling stock potential! And each one of these coaches have a use, need and their owners love them each for what they are…
and each has it’s own cost of making it so. What you may be happy with other may say is junk…. I’ve hadm’ come in here telling me this was junk what an absolute idiot …oh wait… he may be interested in this we built that too for a 6 figure number! So don’t please don’t compare a survivor for something that someone has dreamed of and created…. it could be like this I will tell you this this guy and his dog loved their 20′ Argosy… he was found slumped over a picnic table in a National Park next to a stream (he said he was out to find fishing holes), a huge steak on his plate, a fork in his hand and his dog still sitting by his side when the park ranger found them….. THAT was success! The coach made that happen and yours can too…. praise any coach that has wheels and moves and support anyones idea on what they feel they want their coach to be. This coach that is currently offered for sale is priced at $85,000. There was well over $150,000 invested, the coach was done the right way…. it’s not a survivor rewarmed, please uphold the GMC community and recognize there is the next generation who understands what quality costs today and would rather put that kinda cash in a classic than a shobox! I call that a movement….. get on board!
BTW, the “toll booth” windows in that Argosy are the models for our new GMC toll booth slider windows I feel it’s important to lift up everyone, no matter how much they buy their coach for or what they are asking for theirs. Frankly many of you have the wrong idea in BOTH directions. Sorry, not meaning to offend…. I’m saying this on my site.
The GMC community is growing so really understand it’s not a dying world!
So our upholster has been busy working on Ruby’s seating. This is that 1973 #41, interior direction is to be like an American diner…. sorta. Ruby will end up in the UK so Cedric wants it to keep it’s identity of Americana. We’ve chosen to use a sofa offered in only 1974 called a “flip sofa” .
The back flips over in one motion to the front edge of the sofa making a wider single bed. I’ve been hanging on to that very unique sofa for some special project for years…. here the project is!
Of course all new foam, the spec was red piping onto basic drug store booth seats…. but comfortable!
The dinette seats are from a late model GMC, spring steel slide frames not the wood frame bases and thin foam pades installed in the first year coaches by Gemini.#41 will get the best of the best….
Got more to say but I need to get to work this Friday. Many folks ask me why I spend so much of my day putting all this out…… let me ask you because well over 2000 people are coming here a day….. is it interesting, are you learning something, do you smile at least once during a post? Then I did too and I am enjoying myself…. and appreciate your coming by. Thanks and really, give me a call if I can help……. See ya tomorrow…..
